    it's cold in the treatment room and sometimes it takes longer in treatment room then expected. I really do like Dr Wells and her nurse Stacey.

    The dietician was very kind but knew little about my medical condition. During the conversation it became clear that Google was going to be doing the heavy lift of determining foods, what is the appropriate amount of iron, what if any diets. After googling the questions I asked I received the same information that the dietician provided. I arrived 10 minutes early to my appointment and was told to do labs, checked in for labs, sat, then sent back up after my appointment time, sat again, was walked to a new area, sat, moved again, sat, dietician came over and finally all work started. All of the above would not have been an issue had I been told this was a 2hr process, however, I specifically asked and was told 30-60 minutes. The follow up scheduler did not seem to understand that there are five days in a work week. I repeatedly asked if a different time could be chosen and was given the same day just fifteen minutes earlier.

    First, Dr Wells is truly compassionate and spent a lot time with us explaining treatment options. Awesome! A little heads-up would have been nice concerning the construction and where to park. Fortunately, we did allow extra time to get lost. I feel sorry for the elderly patients. Signage for the Lab is needed. This was our first time here. Apparently it depends on which elevator you take (not the East elevator but the 'shiny' elevator...). Try exiting Suite 250 and find the Lab on the 'first floor'. We were not the only ones looking to get to the lab. This should be a simple fix.

    I didn’t know exactly What to expect. After being called back nurse covered what wAs needed before doctor came in. Then doctor covered what was known what the possibilities were depending on my test results when received. These options would be based on my results. More would be more specific then. So far I have felt the patient is given knowledge and made to be included in what treatment would be best for me.

    I had my annual lab work, mammogram and Oncologist appointments scheduled and then came down with COVID the week they were scheduled. The experience of rescheduling was so efficient. and easy. I really appreciated it! As usual, my experience was A+ thanks to the excellent staff.

    Dr. Mary Huerter Wells takes the time to explain things very well. She uses Layman's terminology so I can understand and feel better about my entire treatment program.

    Dr. Wells, her nurse Stacey, and scheduler Rachel, make me feel like I’m their favorite patient. They are kind, empathic, wicked smart, and always remember my special needs/requests. Their memories are so good!!! They are everything I wanted and didn’t even know I needed in a medical team. They have truly changed my life while saving it. I’m forever grateful. There is not enough kind words to say about them. The infusion team is also truly amazing. They know how to tailor care to each patient. They are all kind, caring, amazing folks who take something so so scary and make it okay.

    My medication had 0 refills & I was almost out of it on 10/20. I was told they were going to reorder it/approve it but Optum mail order pharmacy says they can’t fill it that it’s on hold & now I’m out of my prescription. I don’t understand since it’s a pill I have to take for 5 years.
